Episode 25.8 - Charlie O Tribute Show
November 8

Gordon: This is Gordon Pepper, and Chico, I sort of stretched out the budget this year.
Chico: I blame the economy.
Gordon: Yeah, well usually the November Sweep period bring out the stars. We usually bring out rakes, vacuums, etc.
Chico: Right
Jason: Lots of big names and all that
Gordon: But THIS year, there's just too much for the small stuff. So entertain Jason for a second while I bring out this baby (quickly runs off)
Chico: Okay... *starts playing "Supreme" by Robbie Williams*
Jason: You know about this?
Chico: Nope.
Jason: so how you been, Chico?
Chico: Alright. Tired as all get out.
Jason: Me too. I was sick for part of the week. Bad stomach issues.
Gordon: (Drives in with all terrain vehicle with a Zamboni cover)
Jason: DAMN!
Chico: DUDE!
Jason: What the heck!
Gordon: (stops the ATV and gets out). I made it myself from some of the stuff in the old Battledome arena. You like?
Chico: That's a little extreme, you think?
Jason: Yeah. Wow.
Gordon: Scoops up everything. Perfect for sweeps.
Jason: Yeah and everyone else.
Chico: Ah. Of course.
Chico: And we have a little bit of everything to scoop up. So without further ado, from somewhere in America, the Charlie O'Donnell Tribute Show edition of WLTI... is... ON!
Jason: Yay!
Gordon: Yay! Gordon and Chico here, along with special guest Jason Block. And we start off, unfortunately, with some news that's not good during November sweeps or any other time.
Jason: No not at all.
Chico: This was by far THE story this week, the passing of Charlie O'Donnell...
Jason: The voice of Wheel of Fortune since 1989
Chico: Seems almost like yesterday, doesn't it?
Jason: Now Johnny Gilbert subbed for him this week, after his death was announced on Sunday
Chico: That's kinda weird, yeah.
Jason: Which, if you want to make an assumption, could have meant that Charlie was sicker than we knew.
Chico: Perhaps. But that's of little importance now.
Jason: Agreed. We all had a chance to meet him, and talk to him. And he was a majorly huge class act.
Gordon: He was. There's a lot of stuff that he did. Not just Wheel of Fortune.
Chico: Yes, and I can say without doubt... we lost one of the good ones. Let's look back and remember a long and industrious career.
Gordon: Big Board please?

Charlie O'Donnell... of... Good Fortune

- American Bandstand
- News Anchor
- Announcer Extraordinaire
- American Music Awards
- Emmys
- Oscars
- "The Voice of America's Game"


Gordon: The Subject: Charlie O Donnell..of...Good Fortune.
Chico: Let's see, we know he got his start in his native Philadelphia on American Bandstand. That led him to move out west to become a DJ and news anchor in LA. And then came Joker's and Tic-Tac Dough, as well as Bullseye and Pyramid.
Gordon: Not to mention guest stint on other shows, including Press Your Luck
Chico: Right. Then came the American Music Awards, the Emmys, and the Oscars. And then came Wheel of Fortune. He started on the show but left in 1980, when he was replaced by Jack Clark, who he later replaced in 1989. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Gordon: Wheel of Fortune is the first show that actually treated Charlie more than just a 'voice'. He was his own separate personality and entity.
Chico: He wasn't just a voice on that show, he was "The Voice"
Jason: He was as important as Pat or Vanna.
Gordon: He was. Charlie brought his own flavor to the show.
Chico: There's being the announcer, and then there's being a character, every bit as important as Pat or Vanna. Charlie was that character. WE all remember the distinct way he would just bellow "One hundred thoooooooooooooooooousand dollars!" Or even, the lesser known, but ever so cool... "Rock on."
Jason: Or being the straight man to Pat's series of jokes at his expense. And none of them were mean spirited...EVER. It was a FAMILIAL relationship.
Gordon: Like a 20+ year old family.
Chico: Like a 20+ year old dysfunctional family :-) And I mean that with love.
Jason: The tribute you saw at the end of the show on Friday night, you could HEAR the emotion in Pat and Vanna's voices. This hit them HARD.
Chico: I have a (really bad quality) copy here.

Chico: Now what you saw on TV... that was him. That was all him, his.. joie de vivre... His gusto. His go-for-it attitude, that was all him, and that was all real
Jason: He was just a PRO.
Chico: You can't teach that.
Jason: I remember one taping, he did a trivia bit with 10 $1 bills with 2 kids. He made them feel as important as the adults in the audience. This was during warm up. You can't teach that.
Gordon: He will be missed severely.
Chico: By friend and colleague alike.
Jason: The best quote was from the Wheel of Fortune page on Facebook...
Chico: Do share, sir.

In the coming weeks, we will have guest announcers, including Johnny Gilbert from Jeopardy! and Rich Fields, whom you might recognize from The Price is Right, as well as others to be determined. Eventually, someone will take Charlie's job. But no one can ever take his place.

Jason: To me, nuff said.
Chico: Nuff said, amen, and true that.
Gordon: And so, the next question, as brought up by Greg Palmer and countless others - who will be the next announcer?
Jason: This one is going to be tough.
Chico: Well, as was stated, Johnny Gilbert and Rich Fields will pinch hit until a successor is named. Good to see Rich Fields working in a booth again. I mean, they're going to try and get Charlie O again, but you can't.
Jason: This is where the more traditional announcer is going to be needed though. This is not the Price auditions.
Chico: I have no doubt that Crazy Uncle Harry is going to take this with the seriousness it deserves. After all, it's not just reading copy, as anyone who's ever been ot a Wheel taping can affirm.
Jason: Randy West should be considered. Burton Richardson, All the big guns
Chico: The preeminent announcers of our generation, Randy West, Burton Richardson, Rich Fields... Doug Morris? =p Seriously, though, this can't be said enough, "someone's going to take Charlie's job... NO ONE can take Charlie's place."
Gordon: I agree, but I'm thinking that it will be someone who doesn't have another gig lined up already and someone who's a veteran in the business.
Chico: You sound like someone with someone in mind.
Gordon: I do.
Chico: And I'm going to go like "WOW I didn't even think of that" when I hear it.
Gordon: Maybe. I have 2 thoughts. One you already thought of and one you may not have.
Jason: Ok.
Chico: Hit me.
Gordon: 1. Rich Fields.
Chico: Thought of that.
Jason: He's the lead candidate if you ask me.
Jason: And it would be a nice coup for him if he got it.
Chico: Sorta like a big HA! to the TPIR brass.
Gordon: That's the one you would be thinking about. Here's the one from left field. Someone who hasn't been in the game show business for awhile, someone with nothing to do, and someone who is VERY familiar with the Wheel of Fortune setting.
Chico: Not Bob Goen. :-)
Gordon: Close, but no.
Chico: Not Rolf Benirshcke either.
Gordon: Nope. What about...Chuck Woolery?
Chico: Chuck Woolery? Announcer?
Jason: Good idea, full circle, but honestly, I don't think he would take the pay cut and job cut.
Gordon: I think he would. Tell me what he's doing lately.
Jason: Nothing.
Gordon: Exactly.
Chico: Hawking fishing products.
Gordon: I think the WOF gig pays better.
Chico: Anything pays better.
Jason: It's an idea. But if I were Rich Fields, I would KNOCK this out of the park. This, I believe is HIS to lose.
Gordon: I mean it really depends on what Harry is looking for. If he's looking for a quick fix, then I'd go Gilbert. If he's looking to rotate the announcers, I think Rich Fields has the upper hand.
Chico: Johnny's probably tied up across the lot with J!. I'd say it's Rich's gig for the taking. For now, though. I'll just say.. Charlie O'Donnell... one of our friends in the business... we'll miss you.
Gordon: We will. Moment of silence, please?


Gordon: Thank you.
Jason: Class act. Truly sad news.
Chico: Now onto happier (we hope) subject. The Newlywed Game makes us all happy, right? After all, it's as much light entertainment and schadenfreude as it is a legitimate game show. And now it's got a new host. And the new host, Sherri Shepherd, has... oh dear, Gordon, help me.
Gordon: Oh you think I'm really going to help you here? :)
Chico: NO!
Gordon: You'd be right :)
Jason: What are you trying to say?
Chico: Sheri Shepherd, as host of the Newlywed Game... has really big... potential.
Jason: Two sets of potential right? :)
Chico: But seriously. Sherri Shepherd, new host of TNG. I think we'll keep her. Who knows, maybe she'll enjoy her stint on this side of daytime programming. I for one think she can do it.
Jason: From what I saw, she did a pretty good job. She was looser than Carnie at points.
Chico: Lots looser.
Gordon: She's VERY very saucy.
Jason: Do think this is directorial (Davies) or more host centered?
Chico: Put me down for a little bit of both.
Chico: I mean, this has all of Michael Davies' earmarks... set in the round, lots of lights... subdued colors...
Jason: Because what I noticed is that Shepherd knows her role as conduit.
Chico: And then there's Sherri, who understands her charge and just goes with the flow. I chalk that up to listening to Barbara Walters all these... months.
Jason: She is having more fun than Carnie looked like she was having.
Gordon: I agree with both. He kept the same attitude with Carnie, but Sherri is going beyond it.
Gordon: Sort of like a farmer cultivating crops. Sherri is more ripe...supple...mature.
Jason: You talking about fruit? :)
Chico: Okay, Gordon, I think you're having a bit too much fun with your descrption there.
Gordon: And you expected ME to help you out?
Chico: Oh yeah. You're much more in need of help than I.
Jason: lol
Chico: But seriously, it's a better product... I'm hoping for good things in season 4. Maybe an Emmy? I don't know, just a thought.
Gordon: Seriously, she is very good, and I think she presses the envelope much more than Carrie. This is a good thing.
Jason: Very much so.
Chico: TNG is, and I'm qoting Travis Eberle here... known for slaughtering golden bulls. Sherri is first in line with the cleaver. Sharpened.
Gordon: And there's a lot of meat to carve up.
Chico: And that is also a good thing.
Gordon: Very true. So to wrap this up, you approve?
Chico: Approved.
Jason: Yes sir.
Chico: Newlywed Game season 4.... FAN TESTED... FAN APPROVED
Gordon: YAY!
Chico: And you can take that to the bank. And while you're there, lament that Alina will not join you.
Gordon: Aw.

Chico: It's MERGER TIME! The new tribe is called Libertad, which is Spanish for "freedom"
Jason: I like that actually. Better than NOBAG (Giggle)
Gordon: And Alina is liberated from the rest of her tribe.
Chico: In a 10-2 almost-sweep. The only one to join her in voting for Marty... Jane. So lets break this down. Alina is the target of the new tribe. Then there's the split into factions, with Brenda, Sash, Jane, and Chase wanting to keep Marty around for just a little longer.
Gordon: Well, La Flor has far and away the numbers advantage here. They were up 8-4 going into the merger, so they could cut onto one of their own before going back to Logan's Running out the old people.
Chico: And then there's... NaOnka.
Jason: Her again?
Chico: I'm convinced that if you want to win this game, you have to keep her around. Because there's no way on earth that anyone, but anyone, is going to give a vote to her. So so long as she plays the uber-beeyatch, she's golden. We're just gonna let her think that, too.
Jason: Russell 2.0
Chico: Only she's really bad at playing the game.
Jason: ok
Gordon: If I'm Chase or Sash, I make sure to bring her to the Final 3. Insta-win.
Chico: Score infinity.
Jason: She is poison for herself. She can't win.
Chico: And the kicker is... I don't think she cares.
Gordon: Meanwhile, Jane does nothing to help her cause by outlasting most of the guys during the immunity challenge - even though she procured immunity by being the last woman standing.
Chico: That just makes her target bigger.
Gordon: The good news is that she's aligned with Chase and Sash. The bad news is that she's collateral if the original La Flor band up together after getting rid of Marty, Dan and Holly, who should be the 3 next to go.
Chico: And then, as you said, it's back to Logan's Run.
Gordon: The next 3 episodes should be Logan's Run.
Gordon: Of course, if the outside elders are smart, they should band with outsiders Kelly and NaOnka and Fabio
Chico: IF they were smart.
Gordon: That would be 6-5 and they would control the game. Do I see them being that smart? no.
Chico: I'm guessing they're going to look around and wonder where all the oldies went.
Chico: And then they're going to get voted off.
Gordon: Pa-gone
Chico: Basically. And they can take Rick Fox with them. He's old too.

Chico: Once again, we're left with the really good... and the really bad... and then the so-so are getting picked off. Of course, it doesn't help matters that they're being compared to some of DWTS' heavyweights on this, the week of their 200th show
Gordon: If you're not Jennifer or Brandy, you have problems.
Jason: Sweeps gimmick!
Chico: Also, if you're not Kyle or Bristol, then you have problems. That just leaves... Kurt Warner. Who's been, again, so-so. He's the last of the so-sos. That means barring an eventually self-righting of the ship, he's going home next.
Jason: Makes sense. Its all about the pattern.
Gordon: Which brings up this question. We all know that Bristol is not going to win based on the judges. We also konw the audience votes the winner and we know she's still there because of the popularity vote. Is there any chance she could win?
Jason: Absolutely.
Chico: Quite possibly, barring a complete flameout on the panel.
Jason: Flyover country could definitely give the quick fickle finger of fate to the judges.
Chico: They always do.
Gordon: Let's say that Bristol wins. Could that spoell problems for the DWTS franchise?
Jason: Not at all.
Chico: Not really.
Jason: Too big to fail.
Chico: I mean, Nicole Scherzinger was a ringer... she won. And the world is still here. You survive that, you can survive anything. That said, I genuinely think someone talented will edge her out.
Jason: I mean we all forget the Kelly Monaco/John O'Hurley controversy from Season 1
Chico: Nothing against Bristol the Colt Pistol - she's trying her butt off - but the champ is beatable.
Gordon: Sure is.
Chico: These last few weeks are going to be quite interesting. Not as interesting as Idolers on Don't Forget the Lyrics. But still interesting. This is just for you, G...

Chico: Now Taylor Hicks and Bo Bice already played, so we won't talk about those two.
Gordon: This week was interesting, all right.
Chico: I'll just say Taylor Hicks owns this game for free and end it at that.
Gordon: Taylor showed his knowledge of the world he lives in.,
Chico: Then there are three MORE Idolers... Blake Lewis, Elliott Yamin, and some guy from some thing I don't remember...ALEX LAMBERT, thank you, brain. My friends... who wants a singalong?
Jason: Yay!
Jason: I am ready!
Chico: First, Alex Lambert... I can't remember from anything.
Gordon: Alex Lambert - the year AFTER Adam Lambert
Chico: Right. He has "Love Train" as his Encore. Ten words... to Love Train.

People all over the world (everybody)
Join hands (join)
Start a love train, love train
People all over the world (all the world, now)
Join hands (love ride)Start a love train (love ride), love train
The next stop that we make will be...

Chico: Jason? Where are we takin' this train?
Jason: Dont know, sorry
Chico: Gordon?
Gordon: Chico's House celebrating his North Carolina Teams sucking massive wind!
Chico: NO!
Jason: rofl
Chico: England, tell all the folks in Russia and China too.
Gordon: I thought those were catchy
Chico: You'd be the only one
Gordon: Jason liked it, too.
Chico: He likes everything. Next is Elliott Yamin. Another AI success story without having won anything... He sweeps the baord.
Chico: Now the Encore... "Every Little Step" by Bobby Brown; (12 words...)

I can't sleep at night, I toss and turn
Listenin' for the telephone
But when I get your call, I'm all choked up
Can't believe you called my home
And as a matter of fact, it blows my mind
You would even talk to me
Because a girl like you is like a dream come true
A real life fantasy
No matter what your friends try to tell ya
We were made to fall in love
And we will be together, any kind of weather
It's like that, it's like that
Every little step I take
You will be there
Every little step I make
We'll be together
Every little step I take
You will be there
Every little step I make
We'll be together
I can't think too straight, I'm all confused
You must've put a thing on me

Chico: Gordon?
Gordon: Because there aren't no words that can explain I'm living in ecstasy.
Chico: Hell yeah.
Jason: Because there ain't no words that can explain why I'm Still with Whitney?
Gordon: That SHOULD have been the right lyrics.
Chico: Wrong... but not incorrect.
Jason: LOL
Chico: Finally, Blake Lewis, who lost to Jordin Sparks. But can still do the mouth remixing... Pay attention, this is relevant. 10 words to ... "Freeze Frame" J. Geils.

I could see it was a rough cut Tuesday
Slow motion weekdays stare me down
Her lipstick reflex got me wound
There were no defects to be found
Snapshot image froze without a sound
(Freeze-Frame!) Freeze-Frame! (Freeze-Frame!) Freeze Frame!
(Freeze-Frame!) Freeze Frame! (Freeze-Frame!) Now Freeze!
Now I'm lookin' at a flashback Sunday
zoom lens feeling just...

Jason: won't disappear, Close-up darkroom sweet-talk in my ear
Chico: Gordon?
Gordon: won't disappear. Sherri Shepherd fantasizes about playing with Chico's rear.
Jason: ROFL
Gordon: Hey Chico's Bald and sexy, folks.
Chico: I was going to segue into Master of the Mix, but how can I now?
Gordon: Well, you just did. Sort of.
Chico: Sort of. Well, here's the deal. Its a new show on Centric and BET. Centric Wednesdays, BET Saturdays. Looking for America's best DJ. Some of the biggest names in the game are putting their reps on the line for this show... Jason probably knows more about these MCs than I do, but anyways...
Jason: Give it to me
Chico: We got Vikter Duplaix, Jazzy Joyce, Rich Medina, DJ Scratch, DJ Mars, DJ Revolution, and DJ Rap.
Jason: Jazzy Joyce I know.
Chico: They're competing for $250,000 and the right to be the in-house DJ for Smirnoff.
Jason: Damn. Ok.
Chico: And hosting are Just Blaze and ... the LEGENDARY Kid Capri.
Jason: Know them both. Both NY legends.
Chico: Simple thing to do... Keep the crowds hype.
Jason: Not as simple as you think
Chico: Nope. The good... the folks behind the show did their homework. They went out and got the best.
Chico: And their craft is on full display. It's good stuff. But then it kinda gets lost in the trappings of the reality competition... That is, we gotta create drama. We gotta have tension. We gotta do this, we gotta do that...And for me... the art gets lost. It isn't like ABDC where you can pick it up right as you're going on if you missed a few shows. You lose yourself here, you're lost. Especially given that it's half an hour long.
Jason: Forced drama is bad.
Chico: Very bad. Also.... Just Blaze may be a New York legend, but him telling Scratch how to throw down? Come on now. It's like me telling Pat Sajak how to host a game show.
Jason: Hey Pat...this is how you can do it better? HUH?
Chico: Not to mention all the alcohol. Now I know it's part of the culture, but seriously, you know how many kids are going to be watching this?
Jason: But I cut them a little slack..it IS sponsored by Smirnoff

Centric - Wednesdays 10:30p ET

Chico: I know that. And I get it. But seriously... This is one of those shows where if you get it, you'll like it. If not... don't waste your time. C- And now, for our own master of the mix, MC Haterade and his flying hamsters on the ones and twos.
Jason: Nice moves
Gordon: (shuffle, shuffle, shuffle)
Chico: Look out for the Club Gordon Mixtape, y'all.
Gordon: Roll That Beautiful Brain Footage. Word.
Chico: And that's a good place to stop.

(Doug: Live, local, and latebreaking... From the four corners of the globe to your frontal lobe, this is WLTI Brainvision News, and now here's Gordon Pepper, Chico Alexander, and the award-winning Brainvision News Team)

Chico: Alright. Brainvision... Let's start with more brooms. And vacuums... and steam cleaners.
Gordon: And a Date Book.

We do have lots of November Sweep goodies, featuring the Jeopardy College Championship, Songs from the Movies on DFTL and Celebrity Week on 5th Grader. We also have one premiere, Tuesday's The Fashion Show.

Chico: I'm guessing some of the latter two we've seen on MNT, which will may MY life easier.
Gordon: Probably
Jason: Probably
Chico: Yep. And this will also make my life easier... A baseball bat. And it has a sword attached.
Chico: Awesome.
Jason: Is it a Hanzo?
Chico: Hell yeah.
Jason: Then this is going to be good.

When Ninja Warrior returns for season 2 next month, there'll be two new hosts at the helm. Stop at... Matt Iseman and MMA fighter Jimmy SMith.

Chico: You remember Matt from "Sports Soup" on Versus.
Jason: Not bad.
Chico: Nope. And Jimmy SMith... he lends athleticism to the proceedings. Certainly a step up from that douchebag who hosted with Alison Haislip last season. BTW, she returns as a correspondent.
Gordon: Smart move for ALlison.
Chico: Very.
Gordon: But this week isn't all about smart moves.
Jason: Oh no.
Gordon: Nope. Especially not with the electiones here and gone.
Chico: Oh NOoooooo
Jason: Hey now!

Are YOU Smarter than..Bristol Palin, who after living with mommy in that sort of family life, FORGETS TO VOTE.

Chico: Yikes. That could be awkward.

With the voting in Alaska still too close to call but looking like the Democrats may have pulled it off, that one Republican vote may have sort have been somewhat important.

Chico: ... SOMEWHAT. And that's only IF she listened to mom. Though she's grown. She can make her own decisions. Lord knows she made one decision on her own...*slaps self* BAD! Speaking of Haterade. Gordon?
Gordon: Now for the Haterade, and this one is a doozy.
Chico: I'm thirsty.
Jason: I got my cup here.

After they spent all the money on surgeries and healing crystals and cars and jets, and that Hills thing got cancelled, and the attempt to parlay a career from 'I'm a Celebrity' didn't work out too well, and the attempt to get mileage from their 'let's stage a divorce' thing got them nowhere, Heidi and Spencer declare bankruptcy and are now living in the parents guest room after blowing through a couple of mill.

Jason: Are you ******* kidding me?
Chico: Basically, Heidi & Spencer learn the hard way that spending money like it's going out of style is... surprisingly... out of style.
Gordon: But, and I hate to say this...the lesson is well-deserved.
Chico: Thank you.
Jason: (Standing ovation)
Gordon: Let's send them away on a trip. Unfortunately, I don't think you have anything from Antarctica, do you?
Chico: Sorry. We're going British again today...

The Cube has just been reupped for a third season. In a related story, Minute to Win It episodes will be replacing the recently cancelled Undercovers in December.

Jason: Go Guy Fieri
Chico: And he's on the cover of the Wii version as well. So you know it has to be good. Or it's a giant money grub, I forget which. :-)
Jason: How about both :)
Chico: Hey Gordon, there's a red couch over there!
Gordon: And its VERY big.
Chico: How big is it?
Gordon: Lay it out for us, Brother Chico

Gordon: STOP!
Jason: STOP!
Gordon: Stooop...at a Starface Whammy (waa waaaaa)
Chico: "Now that I'm a star, I need makeup. MAKEUP!"
Gordon: If it's Starface Season 2, Chico it's all yuors.
Chico: Wonderful. Just... wonderful.
Gordon: I got more.
Chico: Hit it.

In this week's Media Ho Report, Ryan Seacrest is spotted with Julianne Hough, Chris Sligh has a baby girl, Jake Pavelka is dating again...Julien Hug (The Bachelor) is found dead of an apparent suicide, John Davidson (remember him?) performs in Corpus Christi, and Nick Lachey is engaged to Vanessa Minnillo.

Chico: If you're keeping score... Sing-Off host... True Beauty host. Expect really lame game show ho babies.
Jason: ROFL
Gordon: But none of them are your hoes of the week.
Chico: Who you have, sir?
Gordon: I have Rebecca Budig, Bethenny Frankel, Jonny Moseley, Vince Neil, Brandon Mychal SMith and Sean Young.
Chico: They're skating... with the stars. I think Bethenny Frankel's making a career out of being a media ho Remember when she was "just that chick on the Apprentice Martha Stewart"?
Jason: This....looks...uber lame.
Chico: And guess who's going to cover it. *raises hand*
Gordon: They are skating, and it does look uber-lame. My money is on Moseley the skier and watching the finals o Saturday night after it gets booted from whatever time slot they are putting it on/.
Chico: Agreed.
Gordon: And those...are your hoes.
Chico: Finally, let's get loaded. Tell me friends, do you like The Amazing Race?
Jason: Yes.
Chico: Do you like high definition television?
Jason: Yes
Chico: Would you like to see the Amazing Race in high definition television?
Jason: Very much so

It'll happen. Next year.

Jason: Works for me.
Chico: Me too
Chico: Long overdue. Especially with Survivor beating them to the punch.
Gordon: It also means a commitment to the show from CBS. That's VERY expensive to do for that sort of show.
Chico: Eleven HD...Plus the standard for Phil and crew...Yeah, they're ready.
Jason: Thats at least a few million dollar investment
Gordon: And that's Brainvision. Shut it down.
Jason: (shutting down)
Chico: Still to come, our DVR runneth over, so we gotta delete something, but what do we have first, G?
